Optimize image files and comic archives with external tools
A multi-format, recursive, multiprocessor aware, command line image optimizer utility that uses external tools to do the optimizing.
To optimize lossless images like PNG, PNM, GIF, TIFF and BMP, picopt requires either optipng, advpng or pngout be on the path. Optipng provides the most advantage, but best results are acheived by using pngout as well. Advpng support is disabled by default and must be explicitly enabled on the command line.
Picopt uncompresses, optimizes and rezips comic book archive files. Be aware that CBR rar archives will be rezipped into CBZs instead of CBR. Comic book archive optimization is off by defualt.
Picopt allows you to drop picopt timestamps at the root of your recursive optimization trees so you don’t have to remember which files to optimize or when you last optimized them.
Lossless external program packages
brew install optipng pngout jpeg gifsicle
Debian / Ubuntu
apt-get install optipng pngout libjpeg-progs gifsicle python-imaging
Redhat / Fedora
yum install optipng pngout libjpeg-progs gifsicle python-imaging
jpegrescan is a better jpeg optimizer than jpegtran, unfortunately it remains unpackaged :(
git clone email@example.com:kud/jpegrescan.git ln -s jpegrescan/jpegrescan /usr/local/bin/jpegrescan
pip install picopt
Optimize all JPEG files in a dirctory:
Optimize all files and recurse directories:
picotpt -r *
Optimize files and recurse directories AND optimize comic book archives:
picopt -rc *
Optimize files, but not lossless files:
picopt -OPG *
Optimize files, but not jpegs:
picopt -JT *
Optimize files, but not animated gifs:
picopt -G *
Just list files picopt.py would try to optimize:
picopt -l *
Optimize everything in my iPhoto library, but only after the last time i did this, skipping symlinks to avoid massive amounts of duplicate work. Don’t convert lossless files to PNGs because that would confuse iPhoto. Also drop a timestamp file so I don’t have to remember the last time I did this:
picopt -rSYt -D '2013 June 1 14:00' 'Pictures/iPhoto Library'
